The Relationship between Social Competence and Success in the Competitive Work Place for Persons with Mental Retardation.
Butterworth, John, Jr.; Strauch, James D.
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v29 n2 p118-33 Jun 1994
Supervisors and coworkers of 98 persons with mental retardation rated subjects' overall job performance and social interaction and their performance in specific social situations. Results suggest that both task-related and non-task-related social skills make unique and relatively equal contributions to supervisors' and coworkers' perceptions of a worker's competence.
